History:

Spanish pianist and composer. She was born on April 8 of 1902 in Madrid (Spain). Daughter of Blandino García Obispo (1860-1944) and Rosa Ascot Porcar (1869-1952). Sister of Miguel, Blandino, and Felipe García Ascot. She received her musical education from great figures such as Enrique Granados, Felipe Pedrell, Manuel de Falla, and Nadia Boulanger. She married the composer and musicologist Jesús Bal y Gay in 1933, with whom she shared residence in Cambridge between 1935 and 1938; and exile in Mexico between 1939 and 1965. She was part of the Groupo de los Ocho alongside her husband, Juan José Mantecón, Julián Bautista, Fernando Remacha, Salvador Bacarisse, Gustavo Pittaluga, and the brothers Ernesto and Rodolfo Halffer. As a member of the Generation of '27, she developed a masterful career as a pianist in Spain until 1935, continuing it in England, France and Mexico. She showed an absolute commitment to the musical production of this generation, as she premiered her own works for piano and others by her contemporaries. In 1921 she performed in "Paris Noches en los jardines de España" (1909-1916) by Manuel de Falla, performed with four hands alongside Cadiz's artist. She was a true specialist on Falla's work. Part of her composition production disappeared during the Spanish Civil War. Currently some of her works have been recovered for different genres. For piano "Canción de cuna", "Dos piezas de infancia", "Allegretto de una Sonatina", or "Escena «La novia y la mendiga»"; for orchestra "Cielo bajo", "Dos piezas para orquesta de cámara", and "Concierto para piano y orquesta"; and for the chamber genre "Tres canciones para trío de viento". She died on May 2 of 2002 in Torrelaguna (Madrid, Spain).
